The 94th JSME Fluids Engineering Conference was held from 12 to 13, Nov., 2016 at Tokiwa Campus of Yamaguchi University. The conference has keynote lecture from Prof. Yanase (Okayama University), special lecture from Prof. Akashi (Yamaguchi University), and 13 organized sessions and general sessions. At the first day of the conference, the 15th dream of flow contest was held, and various works were presented under the theme of “Utilization of Flow”. Especially, the notable thing was that high school students participated in the contest for first time and they won the first prize.

This issue of the newsletter is “JSME Fluids Engineering Conference”. Articles are contributed by lecturer of the keynote, recipients of the best presentation award of the JSME young researcher fellow, and the best presentation award of the fluid engineering conference. Furthermore, the teams of first prize, and ICHIKI award of the dream of flow contest were reported about the work. It is expected that articles are informative for engineers and researchers, and help to share the activities of the fluids engineering division in the future.

Finally, we would like to thank all the authors for their contributions.

Masaaki Motozawa, Tokitada Hashimoto, Shoichi Matsuda
